UNDRR Global Forum for Disaster Risk Reduction, Geneva, 2019 RISK Award Winner – Hydro Nation Scholar Nandan Mukherjee

Hydro Nation Scholar Nandan Mukerjee a PhD candidate at the University of Dundee received the RISK Award at the closing ceremony of the UNDRR Global Forum for Disaster Risk Reduction in Geneva on Friday 17 May 2019.

Current approaches for managing coastal disasters often focus on building large-scale engineered constructions. Examples include flood walls, embankments or cyclone shelters on raised platforms. While these initiatives can save lives, they rarely address underlying causes of vulnerability. The 2019 RISK Award shifts that focus to a solution that is more integrated and systemic and helps families to address multiple challenges at once: disaster resilient floating homes in coastal Bangladesh.
